I have never realised just how many CBeebies songs and tunes I know until we listened to a newly released CD "CBeebies The Album" (and if you are a fan of CBeebies, today, 5th of November 2012, is the day when you can get your own album).
Every time I hear the familiar words:
"It doesn't matter if you're tiny or tall,
It doesn't matter if you're BIG or
If you wanna have fun, it doesn't matter at all.",
I feel like wiggling my bum and having a little step dance, as the tune is so jolly and catching.
I also like to sing along to "Meet the Veggies", though Eddie tries to stop me, saying "Don't want it", when I ask him what he didn't want, he replies "Mama singing". I appreciate that I am not the X-factor or Britain's Got Talent Material, but I can't be that bad, can I? Talk about knocking my confidence.
Sasha's gone through the stage when he spent a lot of time on the CBeebies website, watching the familiar episodes, playing games and listening to the same tunes. I remember he was driving me crazy, playing "Special delivery service" from Postman Pat or "Big Barn Farm" tune over and over again. They are lovely songs, but if you have to listen to them several dozen times a day, then you start to wish you were elsewhere.
The new CBeebies album is a medley of old favourites and new discoveries. Some tunes are old friends, some are mere acquintances. Some you love, some you love to hate.
This album is prefect for the CBeebies audience. Eddie, for example, loves the Yacki Song from Baby Jake (I confess to be on the point of screaming every time I hear it, but that's not the point, I am not the intended audience for this masterpiece).
